During Bush Era, CIA Lied To Congress

And this is why President Obama is wrong when he so quickly wants to turn the page on the abuse of this country by George W. Bush and Co.

Central Intelligence Agency Director Leon E. Panetta has told lawmakers that CIA officials misled Congress 'for a number of years' since 2001, according to a letter released Wednesday from seven Democratic lawmakers.

The lawmakers say the CIA also withheld information about unspecified 'significant actions.'

The letter didn't identify when Mr. Panetta made the statements or to what they referred.

'This is similar to other deceptions of which we are aware from other recent periods,' the letter continued.
